Who made this book?
(We all did!)
Publicity and Promotion Director
Young readers are curious about how books come into being. Encourage this curiosity. Once a child realizes that a book did not always exist but, rather, was created by an ordinary person, your child might be interested in writing her own book. Prepare to be besieged by questions: How do the hard covers get on the front and back? Who makes the pictures? One children's book writer, Aliki, in anticipation of these questions and to encourage budding authors has presented the young reader with her own book on making books. Aliki's colorful creatures illustrate aspects of bringing a book into being and the text is couched in language easily understood by young children.
